Ultra Micro Interconnects

Ultra Micro Interconnects
Space Saving Designs • Hermaphroditic • High-Density

Samtec’s ultra micro interconnects feature fine pitches, slim body designs and extremely low profiles for incredible design flexibility with high-speed performance up to 56 Gbps PAM4. Self-mating Razor Beam™ interconnects reduce inventory costs, and can be interchanged for a variety of stack heights from 5 to 12 mm with optional EMI shielding. Razor Beam™ contacts feature undercut retention notches with an audible click when mated; this increases mating/unmating forces by 4 to 6 times compared to typical micro pitch connectors.

Micro Blade & Beam systems feature incredibly fine pitches and ultra low stack heights down to 2 mm. For a power/signal application, these interconnects are compatible with mPOWER® ultra micro power system. Jack screw standoffs are available for unmating assistance and protection from component damage.
